Speakeasy features Judy Page on vocals. Judy was recently featured, along with fourteen other Central Illinois artists, in the PBS “Illinois: Art in the Works” series. The WTVP web page includes links to the featured artists. ArtsPartners of Central Illinois assisted WTVP over the summer with coordinating these artists. Judy is joined by a group of very skilled musicians. She and many of them have performed together since 1977. Gary Adkisson on bass, Bryan Moore on drums, Dave Parkinson on tenor sax, alto sax and flute, and Mike Nellas on guitar, round out this talented group. They will play a variety of music styles, ranging from jazz to Rhythm & Blues. This will be a fun night. Speakeasy appears regularly on the first Wednesday evening of each month from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. at the Pizza Works in Peoria Heights. They are also scheduled for Live at the Five Spot in the Contemporary Art Center on Friday, November 23, from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m.
The Central Illinois Jazz Society (CIJS) House Band will play during the first set, under the leadership of Larry Harms. The CIJS House Band features outstanding jazz musicians from the area.
